Here's to a New Year!
The boys made a wonderful snowman! Yes they're back. It's the first time I've ever seen a real snowman being constructed close up. I thought all those Calvin & Hobbes comics with Calvin rolling great balls of snow were metaphorical. It turns out that is exactly how you make a snowman taller than yourself.
A few days later the snowman took a bow, a humongous bow. Actually it looks like he's looking at his weenie. If we weren't on a busy road I'd add another carrot just to drive Jim crazy. Yes, he's back too.
Let's just say he's bowing to 2007. Here's to finishing grad school and renewing my marriage. For the first time in my life I have a job I love AND I'm done with school. No more degrees and no more have to gets, just life. I've been celebrating ever since by knitting, spinning, sewing, and organizing my knitting, spinning and sewing. All I want to do is stay home. I've been cooking and backing, I even made bread!
